Liverpool journalist Sean Bradbury has been sharing his thoughts on the January transfer window and the business the Merseyside club should be looking to do in it.
This comes after Bradbury recently made an appearance on a special bonus episode of the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast on the January transfer window.
During the podcast, Bradbury was asked if Liverpool should try and sign a new centre-back in January to which he gave this response. (1.24)
He said: “I think usually [Jurgen] Klopp and [Michael] Edwards, when they are more reserved, and they choose not to do something, they tend to almost have the last laugh really and be proved right if they’re a bit more measured, they’re a bit more cautious and if they choose to wait for a top target, or wait until the summer, but in this instance, I think it’s a no-brainer, really, I think Liverpool do have to go out and get a centre-back if they can.”
Heading into the January window, Liverpool currently sit at the top of the Premier League table on 33 points after winning nine, drawing six and losing one of their opening 16 league games of the season so far.
TIF Thoughts on Sean Bradbury’s comments on Liverpool’s January window…
Listening to what Bradbury had to say in the podcast, it’s clear that he thinks Liverpool need to focus on signing a centre-back more than any other position in January.
Would you be disappointed if Liverpool didn't sign a centre-back in January?
Taking into account how Liverpool have already conceded 20 goals in the league and currently have Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez out with long-term injuries, maybe adding some defensive reinforcements with a new centre-back in January would be a sensible move for them.
